their perspective. this issue is not about abrogating sacramento and our rights. -- second amendment rights. it is about reasonable limits on those rights. -- one area that has been deemed reasonable is the requirement for background checks. what many of us are saying is what already has been deemed reasonable should be a reasonable requirement when guns are sold regardless of how or where they are sold. i hope we can reach a bipartisan agreement on the reasonable limits requiring background checks when guns are sold. captain kelly, i do appreciate you started your testimony today by saying there is no perfect solution. there are all kinds of antecedents -- environmental issues and community issues that lead to gun violence but i believe we should do that which is reasonable because nothing is perfect. i believe one of the areas of focus for your organization, americans for responsible solutions, is the mental health part of what we should be addressing. do you have any key suggestions that congress can take to help address the mental illness problem? >> first of all, compelling states to s
. the great sacramento valley. 200 miles of it. literally from the beginning of san francisco bay, 200 miles up the sacramento river. and probably, i haven't been able to count all the levees in my district, but i probably have well over 1,500 miles of levees that protect large cities, medium-sized cities, farms and other critical assets and infrastructure in the state of california. for example, the intercontinental rail system. both north and south. intercontinental highway systems. universities. international airports. these critical assets are at risk of flooding. the army corps of engineers, taking a look at the levees in one part of my district, a basin which is part of the city of sacramento, judges those levees to have a one in 30 chance of failure so that over a 30-year period of time it's anticipated there will be a catastrophic failure of those levees. 100,000 lives just in that part of sacramento at immediate risk because those flood waters, should those levees fail, it would make -- it would be a repeat of what happened in new orleans only the water is deeper. and the flood wate

restrict crazy from getting assault weapons. our last call on this is from manuel from west sacramento, california. good morning to you. caller: good morning. glad you took my call. host: go ahead. caller: fine, thank you. i wanted to make mention about the conversation that i hard from some of our police officers here in this area. i won't give their names. nonetheless quite a few were talking and one mentioned during the course of the conversation that he had been there 30 seconds earlier at the school that he would have been able to save half of them. and further on in the conversation the other one said if he had been there 40 seconds earlier he would have been able to save all of them. the third one said if he had been there the crazy jerk wouldn't have gotten in there to begin with. and i have to agree with all three that if you had been there no one would ever have gotten in and if you had seen it occurring outside the school. they have observations out there, i know. another thing, i believe that most of the folks -- not most, let me back that up -- there are a lot of youngster

will continue taking your phone calls as we wait to hear from vice president biden. this is sacramento, california. thanks for waiting, wayne. guest: i believe both replubican ublican and democrats have abandoned their core principles. they put on a very entertaining inaugural day and i wis hi was a coulds a democrat so i party too. the president's speech was a good conservative speech and a third disappointed me. many said to give him another chance. he's been given every chance and -- i don't think it is my way or the high ways on the republicans, but mr. obama. reaching across the aisle is possible, right now. one thing president obama said in one of his books was his words are -- allow him to be something like a blank slate and people attribute what they want to to his words. and he speaks in those general terms and nobody can argue with most of them. but with the deed to match -- that is what it needs to be done. the deeds must match the rhetoric. i wish i'd been there for the party. host: one of the tweets from kay takes issue with the speech -- dear obama, remember when we ended

[applause] thank you. thank you fellow constitutional officers, and all my friends gathered here this morning. the message this year is clear -- california has once again confounded our critics. we have wrought in just two years a solid and enduring budget. and, by god, we will persevere and keep it that way for years to come. [applause] let's not appluad toaud too muc. this is my longest speech. [laughter] against those who take pleasure, singing of our demise, california did the impossible. you, the california legislature, did it. you cast difficult votes to cut billions from the state budget. you curbed prison spending through an historic realignment and you reformed and reduced the state's long term pension liabilities. then, the citizens of california, using their inherent political power under the constitution, finished the task. they embraced the new taxes of proposition 30 by a healthy margin of 55% to 44%.
